Why did the US rapper Hye Kyo choose to sing the National Anthem instead of the US anthem?
Posted On June 22, 2021
The song that’s often used to highlight the US’ commitment to the flag is now being taken down from YouTube.
It was posted on February 20 by the website of YouTube, a US-based platform, and has been removed from the site in an attempt to “improve the user experience”.
In the US, the National anthem is played during the annual March for Life.
On February 21, YouTube removed the video from its website after it was criticised by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) for using the song.
The video is now up for re-uploading, according to YouTube.
In a statement, YouTube said it is removing the video “for violating our policies”.
“We took immediate action to take down the video after learning that the video was used without our approval.
Our policy is to remove videos of non-consensual and harmful conduct that violate our community standards,” the company said.
It added: “YouTube takes its responsibility to ensure a safe and respectful environment for all creators, creators of content, and creators of other content.
In this case, the video appears to be an unauthorized use of the National Air and Space Museum and is being removed from YouTube.”
The video had attracted over 2 million views on YouTube as of February 23.
YouTube removed a video by US rapper Scott Stapp in December 2016 after the rapper had posted a video in which he played a song called the “War on Terror”.
He apologised for the video.
Stapp said he had intended to post a song entitled “The War on Terror”, which was titled after the words of US President Donald Trump.
“I didn’t realize the words would be used to promote a political agenda,” he told the Washington Post at the time.
“It’s not a politically charged song.
It’s about the war on terror.
I’m not going to apologize for that.
I did not mean to offend anyone.
I just wanted to talk about it and make people feel better.”
